or incorrect when you said that the surge would be "the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam"? were you correct or incorrect? yes or no? >> my reference to the surge -- >> are you answering the question, senator hagel? the question is were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. >> well -- >> i would like the answer whether you were right or wrong, and then you are free to elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> well, let the record show you refused to answer that question. now please go ahead. >> well, if you would like me to explain why -- >> i actually would like an answer. yes or no? >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated than that. >> senator mccain and a lot of republican washington is banking on the lesson learned from the iraq war, being that we should have started that war, we should have escalated that war, we should have kept that war going, and now ten years on our only regret about the iraq war should be that we're not still there. and th
dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam. if it's carried out, i will resist it. in march 2008 you said, quote, here the term quagmire could apply. >> what are these, the fulbright hearings all over again? i lived through them. and this guy is going back into some "last year at marienbad" kind of weird 1970s movie where you go back into the past that never even happened. why is he fighting hagel over vietnam? >> well, it's interesting because he's ostensibly fighting with him over iraq, but it immediately becomes over vietnam. he seems to be mad that hagel took issue with him about iraq and compared it to vietnam being the big blunder, which, of course, mccain and hagel both served in. you know, when mccain talks about iraq, all he wants to talk about is from the surge on. it's as if everything before that didn't happen and didn't count, and we can still debate whether the surge worked or not, but the bigger issue is whether iraq was as bad as vietnam, and he doesn't want to have that argument. >> here is mccain sinking his teeth into hagel's ankle here, and he w
or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you correct or incorrect? >> my -- >> yes or no. >> my reference -- >> can you answer the question, senator hagel? the question is, were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. >> well -- >> i would like to answer whether you were right or wrong, and then you are free to elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer -- >> well, let the record show you refused to answer this question. now, please go ahead. >> if you would like me to explain why -- >> i actually would like an answer. yes or no. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated than that, as i have already said. my answer is i'll defer that judgment to history. as to the comment i made about the most dangerous foreign policy decision since vietnam was about not just the surge but the overall war of choice going into iraq. >> i think history has already made a judgment about the surge, sir, and you're on the wrong side of it. >> s
. was that a mistake? >> i don't think that was a mistake. if you look at the overarching ark of our foreign policy, democrats had a sizeable advantage over republicans on the issues of foreign policy and keeping us safe. hillary clinton played a large role in that. if you look at -- i agree with you on the arab spring. got only knows what that is going to turn into. if you look at getting rid of gadhafi, and a large role in whether or not she runs for president because americans don't pay that much attention to foreign policy. >> if she's healthy, given the blood cloth and concussion, if she's healthy, do you think there's any doubt that she's still thinking about being the first woman as president of the united states? >> i have no idea what is in her head. she's certainly a strong institution of the democratic party, certainly stronger than joe biden does. the foreign policy will loom large. we'll ask the question, so what did the obama administration's afghanistan surge accomplish exactly? they sent tens and thousands of additional troops, spent a lot of money. we are going to be out of afghani
he is going to give his manifesto on what republican foreign policy should be. that's going to be next week on ronald reagan's birthday, rand paul. but, you know, it's fitting, because we're coming up on reagan's birthday. and did you hear about the horrible obama muslim marxist thing about his kenyan home? did you hear? >> this is one wall that probably shouldn't be torn down. this apartment building used to be the home of a young ronald reagan. it was denied landmark status, and the university of chicago is ready to demolish it. the university is also trying to become the site of president obama's presidential library. that's drawing strong concerns the university might turn president reagan's former house into a parking lot for an obama library. >> did you hear about that? chicago close ties with the obamas, all of them, tearing down ronald reagan's boyhood home in order to make a parking lot for barack obama's presidential library. did you hear? did you hear? see, here it is on drudge. reagan's home could become parking lot for obama library. here it is on something call

is responsible for our foreign policy, they should stick it to them. this is blood on our hands. >> sean: michelle malkin, this is not going to end well. it is going to end very badly. it already is ending badly. this is the height of irresponsibility. good to see you. >> you too. >> sean: still ahead, the president claims to be an avid skeet shooter but will he accept the challenge of a republican congresswoman saying she can beat him. and does guess tinge hated speech that comes from the radio airwaves, all liberals and includes one idiotic one left wing host that my listeners abuse wives and children. i'll respond to that and more as we continue. >> they should be run over by a semi. >> these are the ones who beat their children. they listen as limbaugh and hannity and rest of them put these subtle messages to mistreat their wives and never give up their guns. c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg
state department and to work with me in tackling this ambitious foreign policy agenda. >> what was hillary clinton's initial reaction when you told her, look, they're actually considering you as a possibility for secretary of state? >> she didn't believe it. >> reporter: he is one of clinton's closest aides. >> i e-mailed her, i think it was the friday after election day after hearing it from two reporters. and i'm pretty sure her reply was something along the lines of, not for a million reasons. >> if she was hesitant, why not just say no? >> i think she did or came awfully close. i think the president was very persuasive. >> we're delighted to welcome senator clinton, secretary of state designate -- >> clinton was quickly confirmed. but how would she get along with the man who defeated her campaign? could she work for him? >> everyone expected, including myself, that there would be a lot of division, a lot of secretary clinton going behind the president's back. >> so was there any tension coming in between the two people at the top? >> i think everyone's been surprised. >> su
of the military and foreign policy is exactly that of reagan's, that it should be driven by the national security interests of the united states, that we should go in with clear, defined objectives, overwhelming force, and then when we're done, get the heck out. >> does anyone believe paul ryan would have taken us into a hawkish war like iraq? by the way, john kerry and chuck hagel aren't fans of the u.s. military? oh? someone remind the president or remind the senator from texas that both hagel and kerry volunteered to serve in vietnam and have been awarded five purple hearts between them. senator cruz has no experience personally in the u.s. military and, as i said earlier, was one of the three senators who voted against confirming john kerry earlier today. >>> also, hillary clinton reunited with australian comedy duo hamish and andy. she first met them back in 2010 during a visit to australia and today they popped up at what's being called a global town interview or town-terview with the secretary of state. >> madam secretary, obviously a lot of good questions we had were taken earlier tonight
out. >> you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam. were you correct or incorrect? yes or no? >> my reference to -- >> are you going to answer the question, senator hagel? the question is were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straight forward question. >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> well, you refuse to answer that question. >>> chuck hagel's performance at today's senate confirmation hearing was fill with so many awkward moments and gaffes, the question has to be asked is his nomination now in total jeopardy? let's talk to jennifer ruben, she's closely following this story today. jennifer, look, i just had a thought. i was reading your blogs and other stuff, that actually hagel may be exactly what obama wants. ambiguous on iran, jennifer. okay, no commitments on iran one way or another. totally downsize the pentagon. and really ambiguity on israel, too. is that possible that's why he was picked? >> well, actually, i think even more revealing when he said it doesn't matter what i
about the weather getting warmer. >> american foreign policy is also defined by food security energy security humanitarian assistance. it is define by leadership on life threatening issues like climate change. liz: washington watchdog say this could cost taxpayers a bundle. we have weber and lindsey here. phil, start with you make your case. >> well, if you look at what his predecessor, hillary clinton did in copenhagen, with a million a year in global warming, never made process, moving that domestically to get the funding for that. there's been a lot of secret treasury documents talking about a carbon tax. the president is coy about a carbon tax but at some point there's going to be a push for that in order to fund international transfers, and there's a secretary of state nominee who says it's the number one top priority, and it's been the focus of the coverage here in the beltway that this is a signal where the administration wants to go. liz: i think there's a lot to say about that. what do you think? >
street, perhaps a shift in foreign policy. >> steve: what else? >> it also says that the president is looking to people who he trusts. the thing about this president that needs to be understood is that he's willing to appoint people who may have opposed him. you have to realize he appointed hillary clinton. he appointed joe biden. now he has appointed john kerry. these are all people who ran against him for president. ray lahood is a republican. so the president will appoint people ho disagree with him, but at the same time, he wants people who he believes he can trust. look at dennis mcdonough who will be the chief of staff. he raised him up out of the national security council. >> steve: shower. what about some critics, and there is a picture right there. what about critics who say he's a control freak and he winds up getting rid of people who he's got a problem with? >> he's the president of the united states. he has to make the decisions ultimately. i dealt with the president on health care issue and frankly, he wouldn't budge. he had his opinion. he stayed with it. and ultimat
't usually think of as economic policy. immigration reform. i want to give you a few facts about immigrants and the american economy. first, about a tenth of the population is foreign-born, but more than a quarter of business started had a foreign-born owner. in silicon valley, half of all tech starts had a foreign-born owner. right now, about half of the doctors working in science and technology in america are foreign-born. immigrants are 30% more likely to get new businesses and three times more likely to file patents than their counterparts, on average, they tend to lift the american wages. the case is made by way of analogy. everybody gets, aging economies with low birth rates are in trouble. immigration is essential the importing of new workers, like raising the birth rate. but easier, because the newcomers are able to work immediately. you don't have to teach them to walk or eat with a fork. and in the u.s., they have an unusually amount to gain from the immigration, because when it comes to the global draft, we almost always get the first round picks. we do if we want them, and we ma
for the future. those used to be our partners in the future. we should be sending foreign aid to them, that the regime of president. my call to congress is you have to do something about it. you have to pressure the administration to have a different policy with regard to egypt. lou: north korea again threatening south korea, threatening the united states, threatening another nuclear test the prospect of more missile tests. what should be the u.s. response to what has, it looks to be, another adventuress regime in north korea. >> first, the equation is simple. the more north korean regime is going to do in terms of showing as the missiles, testing missiles demobilizing, threatening against the south koreans, and we don't do anything meaningful. meeting, we don't have a containment policy, the work even with the chinese and the russians to contain the north koreans. you do more of it. at some point in time there will show us the missiles with the bomb. the other byproduct of this is that other regimes, the iranian regime is looking at how we are not containing the north koreans, even a
